By December 2008 I...

I struggled with accepting what I looked like due to the fact that I am completely because of being diagnosed with alopecia. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes severe hair loss.

My name is Michelle. I love all of the lovely things in life. And the lovely things in life love me too, I suppose. Or one would assume, since I’ve been fortunate to experience many lovely things.

Somewhere around November 18th or 19th of 2007, I started feeling what I thought were Carpal Tunnel symptoms in my right hand. The symptoms included: tingling of my fingers, numbness, and I was having trouble typing. I went out and bought wrist guards, and things designed to help CT patients. The symptoms continued for about two weeks and I promised I?d visit the doctor after Thanksgiving....
